    We are just about settled with winter housing for chickens and guineas, and beginnign to look toward next year.

    Can turkeys be housed with chickens?

    Thank you:frow

    I do, but I don't think you are supposed to because they are so susceptable to diseases. Most of my roost on TOP of the coop, and rarely inside, even when it is cold and icy. They run all together in the day, free-ranging and they can fly about as high as they want to, so keeping them confined is hard with my short fence.
